Scholarly & Peer-Reviewed Content: Linking Back to Articles

Linking Directly to Articles in Library Databases

To successfully get back to an article later on, you will need to create links to the articles that run through the college's proxy server. If you do NOT do this, only on-campus students or teachers will be able to access the articles.

Each database is a little different, so see below for instructions. These links will also work for on campus students. Off campus students will be asked to enter their campus username and password (the same one they use for OC email/Canvas/etc.) to access the database/article.
